Here are the Newsmax Rising Bestsellers for the week of October 25, 2021:
1. “RADICAL NATION: Joe Biden and Kamala Harris's Dangerous Plan for America’’ by Sean Spicer (Humanix Books)
The popular co-host of Newsmax’s “Spicer & Co., who served as White House press secretary under President Donald Trump argues that the progressive agenda of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris presents a radical change to the American economy, values, national security and freedom.
America, he believes, is lurching towards economic collapse, runaway inflation, wide-open borders, an all-out assault on human life and religious liberty, a K-12 school indoctrination plan, “election reforms” to ensure never-ending Democratic Party rule and more.
Spicer presents a bold grassroots agenda for defending America against the Progressives’ Socialist agenda. (Nonfiction)
2. “What Do White Americans Owe Black People: Racial Justice in the Age of Post-Oppression’’ by Jason D. Hill (Post Hill Press)
Hill, a professor of philosophy and Honors Distinguished Faculty at DePaul University specializing in ethics, politics, foreign policy and moral psychology, calls on black American leaders — and their white liberal sponsors — to escape from the cycle of blame and finger-pointing, which seeks to identify black failures with white hatred and indifference.
He says culpability, justice and fairness are the responsibilities of individuals, not arbitrary racial or ethnic groupings. (Nonfiction)
3. “Don't Blow Yourself Up: The Further True Adventures and Travails of the Rocket Boy of October Sky’’ by Homer Hickam (Post Hill Press) Hickham had a runaway bestseller in 1998 with “Rocket Boys,’’ a whimsical memoir about growing up in Coalwood, West Virginia, which was turned into the movie “October Sky.’’
In this new autobiographical effort, he recounts his college years, fighting in Vietnam, discovering sunken U-boats, befriending Tom Clancy, helping train the first Japanese astronauts, teaching David Letterman to scuba dive and repairing the Hubble Space Telescope. (Nonfiction)
4. "The Deep Places: A Memoir of Illness and Discovery’’ by Ross Douthat (Convergent Books) In the summer of 2015, Douthat, a conservative columnist for the New York Times, found himself wracked with pain and discovered he had a disease which according to CDC definitions does not actually exist: the chronic form of Lyme disease, a condition that devastates the lives of tens of thousands of people but has no official recognition and no medically approved cure.
In this memoir, Douthat recounts his search for help, which takes him off the map of official medicine, into territory where cranks and conspiracies abound, and patients are forced to take control of their own treatment and experiment on themselves. (Nonfiction)
5. “The Judge’s List’’ by John Grisham (Doubleday) In Grisham’s latest legal thriller, an investigator follows the trail of a serial killer and closes in on a surprising suspect — a sitting judge with a list of people who have wronged him in some way. Suspicions are easy enough, but proof seems impossible.
This is the bestselling lawyer-turned-novelist’s 49th book since he began writing in 1989. (Fiction)
